Will Smith Issues An Apology To The Academy and Chris Rock
“Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally,” he wrote. “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
“I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us,” he wrote. “I am a work in progress.”
There was a statement circulating that was allegedly from Chris Rock. It consisted of an apology from Chris Rock to Will and Jada. A representative for Chris Rock later confirmed that “Chris Rock has not yet issued a statement.” It seems that everyone from Will’s Mom to Chris’s Brother Tony Rock has chimed in on their thoughts. It was first alleged that Will was asked to leave the venue but that was immediately clarified and updated that some members wanted him to leave but since no decision was made, he was in fact never asked to leave. Things still continue to unfold in regard to this unfortunate matter. I hope that both parties will soon be able to move forward.
